WAUKESHA - When the opportunity arose to purchase another Waukesha printer, Delzer President Mike Delzer seized the opportunity.

On Jan. 30, Delzer purchased Lithoprint Company, 210 S. Prairie Ave., and is in the process of combining the operations.  Lithoprint was started in 1954.

Delzer, a third-generation owner of the business, said he saw the acquisition as a good opportunity.

“We were approached by the owner of Lithoprint about the possibility of acquiring his business. He was interested in exiting as an owner,” Delzer said.

As part of the acquisition, Delzer acquired the contracts and some of the employees. Lithoprint’s building and equipment were not part of the deal and will be liquidated. Delzer declined to comment on how many employees were acquired as part of the deal.

Delzer, 510 S. West Ave., is also upgrading its presses, including  the addition of two Konica Minolta 2500 P digital presses, three Konica Minolta C1100 digital presses and a Komori GL840 perfecting press, which is an eight-color, 40-inch perfecting press that uses H-UV ink technology.
